Goodbye winter, hello spring
We are two days away from pitchers/catchers reporting to Jupiter, Fla., and less than 72 hours away from the Cardinals first official workout of Spring Training. Feel free to remind yourself of this good news as you step outside into those biting cold temperatures. I’m spending my last day at home feverishly gargling warm salt water in an attempt to reclaim my voice. I’d like to take it with me to Florida and leave behind this flu. Perhaps the promise of warm weather will quicken the healing.
Anyways, as you bunker down for the final weeks of winter, I do hope that you are looking forward to all the Cardinals coverage about to come your way. I will be in Florida for the duration of camp and promise to supply you with enough stories, videos and photos to keep you satisfied while you count down to March 31.
So what can you expect? Here are a few notes on the coverage plans and some new ways to follow Cardinals news via MLB.com:
- Cardinals.com: Obviously, this remains the central landing page for all things Cardinals. Daily features and notebooks will be posted on the site, as well as videos and highlights (once games start). Bookmark it.
- Blog (By Gosh, It’s Langosch): This blog will see increased activity upon my arrival to Spring Training. I will resurrect the ‘Q of the Day’ feature in which I answer a reader’s question each day. To get me started, email questions (include first name, last initial, hometown) over to me at email@example.com. In addition, I intend to update the blog with news each morning, breaking news as it comes and a final wrap-up of the day’s events late in the afternoon. Little tidbits or observations that don’t make it into the Cardinals.com stories will find a home here.
- Twitter (@LangoschMLB): Want instantaneous updates? Then take to twitter.
- Instagram (@LangoschMLB): If photos are your thing, this is where they will be posted.
- Facebook (Jenifer Langosch for Cardinals.com): Like this new Facebook page so that news, videos and photos will show up automatically in your news feed.
- Flipboard (St. Louis Cardinals on MLB.com): For those who gather news on their tablets, try out this application. I’m still new to Flipboard, so please be patient if there is a learning curve. But I’ll be sure to link content here so that you have easy tablet access.
I’m excited to watch another baseball season begin to unfold and to see it all happen alongside all of you. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
